A new paleo snack.....


A great interest of mine is hillwalking in the Scottish mountains and so I read a few blogs related to that. One of them is by a funny writer PTC who as well as being a plumber also tests and reviews outdoor gear.

Today he was talking about a new source of Jerky that he had found. Locally produced from decent animals - venison is as grass-fed as it gets. Great for snacks during long walks /climbs and a lot better than a bar of chocolate or some peanuts.


Beef Jerky and Venison Jerky from the Highlands of Scotland : Produced from prime Scotch Beef and wild Highland Venison, Delivered directly to you!

Jerky is a low fat, low carbohydrate, high protein tasty snack that you eat straight from the pack.

We produce beef jerky and venison jerky in four great flavours, in the Highlands of Scotland, using 100% pure Scottish grass fed cattle and wild deer reared on Highland estates.

We slice our beef jerky pieces straight from whole pieces of topside and venison jerky from top grade haunches of venison, marinade, then air dry them in our factory in Nairn. Once completed, we vacuum pack our jerky (to keep it fresh for up to one year), ready for delivery.

Because we use the best ingredients, we believe we produce the best beef jerky and venison jerky available. But that's for you to decide. Pack some jerky in your bag and take it with you walking, cycling, golfing, mountainbiking, climbing or skiing and you'll always have a protein boost to hand. Or have a pack with your favourite tipple, and tell us your favourite combination. The best suggestions win free jerky.

We slice our beef jerky and venison jerky more finely than most other producers, so the taste of the meat comes through quicker.


I've ordered some to see what it is like.

I also won some free with a joke:

What do you call a cow with a twitch?.....................beef jerky!



Looks like good stuff. If you are into your primal / evolutionary fitness diets, I expect that dried meat may well have been a component of our hunter ancestors' diet. It certainly was - in the form of pemmican - for American Indians.

I thought jerky was an American thing. I tried it once in the states ... YUK!

In Australia we've got these dog snacks called "Shmackos" ... Jerky looks like that (And I suspect they taste similar!)

I'll let you know what this lot is like. The stuff I've had before was a bit like off cuts of leather....

By the way did you see this vid I linked to recently? The guy is the instructor of my Krav instructor:

I personally enjoy jerky, but then I'm a Yank. My uncle hunts deer and elk, and the jerky he makes is pretty good. It can be kind of tough due to the leanness, but has a unique flavor. Hope you enjoy it!

Hi Chris,

Did you get round to trying the venison jerky?

If so, how was it?

Thanks,

Chet
